Original text tranlsated into Spanish.
The text is titled "The Third World War".
I have translated just the final paragraph from it. If you read Spanish: please follow the link above and read it in full: it's not that large, but thought-provoking.
What kind of democracy it is when 67% of North Americans are against export of weapons to Ukraine, and 98% of their representatives vote in favour? What kind of democracy is it in Europe when there is similar or even greater discrepancy that separates citizens from their governments and the European Commission? Or when the European Parliament is busy with its routine while Europe prepares itself to be the next theatre of war, and Ukraine — the next Libya?
